Hi you seem very sharp on these polaris watercrafts, please help me out, I bouhgt a 96 sl900 that idles well runs good up to 3500 rpms then starts missing or stuttering badly after that,while out of the water. in the water it will only run up to 40 mph the bog out. I was told there was a new stater put in 3 years ago. the ski has only 45 hrs. I checked the cdi box part no. and it matches the one that comes with the updated stator kit. I also checked the stater with an ohms test and one of the exciter coils reads 8 ohms and the spec say it should be 1250. all coils checked good. Is it possible that this newer version of the stator also went bad or what could my problem be. one dealers says that they just quit when the stator is bad another says different . please help thanksThese checks are to be done after the initial static check of all components such as but not limited to the following:
Spark plug wires
I hope that has helped some of you out. Below I have listed the numbers of the stator update kits for the older PVL ignitions.
